Nice sleeper build! I'm pretty sure if you got a new case with airflow in mind, you'd see your temps drop a good amount.

Nice build! Why didn't you got with the new Thermaltake Riing RGB fans that are controlled by software? They are about the same price and give you more options.

Europe hasn't really been affected by the miners and the skyrocketing graphics card prices (luckily), but that doesn't mean that we have a huge stock and/or haven't had some of the prices go up... From what I've seen KFA2/Galax cards have stayed at the same price.

Nice build! I'm going to do something similar to this! I was just wondering why in the parts list you have the Gigabyte 1070, but in your pictures you have the EVGA 1070 FTW?

Nice build! You should've gone with the Galax HOF 1080 or the Asus Dual 1080 to stick with the white and black theme! Or even the EVGA SC 1080.

Nice build! I'm thinking of doing about the same config just changing a few brands here and there. I like that glass of wine in the last picture! You for sure need one after putting together a computer!

The Cooler that comes with the 1700 is a LED version. They are both the same cooler but one is LED and the other isn't!

If all 3 of your graphics cards are 290X, you should sell them right now because of the higher price they fetch with all the mining going on right now! You could probably buy a gtx 1070 or 1080 with that money and achieve better performance in games

On a side note, the OCD and neat freak in me wants to clean all that dust in your case!

You would have a problem in certain AAA titles to push 144Hz at 1440p with a 1080. They say the 1080 is for 1440p 60Hz, 4K 30Hz or 1080p 144Hz. Whereas the 1080Ti is for 1080p 185hz, 1440p 144Hz or 4K 60Hz. When it comes to 1440p and above, the processor only factors in slightly and it's mainly up to your GPU for what you can do.

For 1440p 144Hz+ and for 4K gaming there will be no bottleneck. Those two resolutions are more gpu bound than cpu. If he were to game at 1080p that would be another story because even the almighty i7 7700k would actually be a bottleneck to the 1080Ti at 1080p.

How is this build for 1440p 60Hz gaming? I'm looking into doing one almost the same (1080 instead of a 1070).

That's why I used the term "almost" because I know that it's not possible in all games. I intend to play Battlefront 2, New World (when it comes out), ESO, Destiny 2 and others.

No he's right. On EVGA's website it clearly says that it is a 8+8 power system. And all the water block on it does is remove the stock cooler and back plate. It doesn't in any way change the PCB or power system.

Wow nice build! +1

I was wondering what type of performance you get pairing the R5 1600X with the GTX 1080? I'm looking into doing an AMD Ryzen (1600X or 1700) build with either a 1080 or 1080ti, but I have read that the R5 1600X might cause a bottleneck for those GPUs.

When he says that finances were a road block that means that he had problems finding funding for his project, but then when he says when considering parts, cost wasn't a concern it means that he didn't care how much it cost. Normally in his case cost would be a concern because that would mean he wouldn't have as many problems getting the funding.

Nice build, but you could've saved a lot of money by not taking that MoBo and put it to a better power supply or even a HDD. Also you could've saved tons on a different M.2. And in your description it is sort of conflicting... You start by saying finances were a road block, but then you say that you weren't driven by cost.

In all very nice build! But you could've done better with choosing some of the parts.

Oh I didn't notice it in the middle slot! Yes the middle one is x16 too with one card. It's still weird that you aren't getting higher fps with a 1070... Might need to have a look at your settings and see.

Nice build! All that RGB makes my eyes go crazy! But umm why do you have your gpu in the bottom slot? You know thats only a x8 slot and the top one is a x16? That might be why you don't have great fois in Arma.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Upgrading to Ryzen 5. After advice for MoBo, RAM speed and GPU."

From what I heard Ryzen 5 chips aren't so dependent on RAM speed like Ryzen 7 is. But if the price between 3000 and 3200 isn't that huge just go with 3200.

Now for Xfire, there are some B350 boards that do support this like some MSI ones. For SLI on the other hand, you need X370 boards. So you could go with a B350 board and save some money or just splurge on a X370.

For CPU coolers, it depends if you want to go with air cooling or an AIO. For air, Be Quiet! Noctua or Cryorig are great brands or Cooler Master. Just look for something with an AM4 bracket. For water, Corsair or NZXT are very good brands but this is going to be a more expensive option compared to air.

The 1050ti is a pretty solid gpu for 1080p gaming on a budget. Just look up the reviews online. For the wireless card, I use this myself and it works great for a wireless card. Never had a problem and it is pretty fast.

I can put that M.2 on the other build too. I just didn't think about updating the build.

I was thinking of getting maybe one of the new ICX EVGA cards. From the reviews, they look a bit better temperature wise than the ACX ones.

Thanks for your input!

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Need Advice on i5 7600K"

  • 35 months ago

I have seen some people with AIOs push their i5-7600k to even 5GHz! Now it all depends if you won the Silicon Lottery for how far you can push it.

Plus to see if you're OC is stable you have to run a stability test like AIDA64 or PRIME95 to make sure you don't reach the max temps or to see if your computer doesn't crash, etc. Lower volts = lower temps on your cpu.

If you want to OC to 4.2GHz, around the ballpark of 1.2V should be good for it. But like the others said do small 0.025V increments, because you want the lowest volts possible for your OC.

Thanks for your input! Yeah I too was wanting to get the filter in all white because I want to get the white case. I have the same shipping fees as you do and I live in France! I guess I win in that situation...

I just wish NZXT would release some filters for their case.... Who knows maybe some rgb one that hooks up to their HUE+ wink wink.

The DEMCifilter's looked the best from what I saw when I googled it, but I just couldn't find any reviews for them...

Nice Build! I was wondering (because I really like this case too and probably gonna do my build in it), do you think a MATX mobo would be better for fan clearance on the bottm instead of full ATX?

You should change the RAM setup on your build. You'd profit more from a dual channel setup then single channel.

Ok thanks for your help! Any other suggestions?

And for the prices I sourced most from amazon.fr, but for the OS I'm getting it from Amazon.co.uk in USB form and the case I'm getting it from a French PC site it's 78 + 2 for shipping. You just have to look for the components that Amazon sells and not the other vendors. I won't buy from 3rd party vendors from Amazon, too many bad experiences with it.

I would switch that R9 390X for the RX 480 and save around $80 bringing you to a just below $1000 pc.
